As much as it bothers me, I cannot help but feel that the SHTF scenario will include nuclear annihilation of major cities. In anticipation of humans
doing what they do best (total destruction based on hurt feelings or greed), I have purchased an older book "How To Survive A Nuclear Attack".
Oddly enough, this book states that there will be plenty of survivors, and there are things to be done, such as what you quoted, which can rid the
body of excess radiation. Fallout in areas outside of the target zones is the biggest threat. I was surprised at what simple solutions the book
showed to have things like clean food and water, and safety from the radioactive particles raining from the sky.
If your hair falls out, you've gotten a darn-near lethal dose of radioactivity, and you may not live long enough to enjoy it growing out,
